Hello i have been playing for about 4 years but only learning to read music and begining theory this year, i had a few quick questions for you folks

1. What is the name of the technique that requires you to constantly hammer/pull with out any strumming?, many virtuoso's use this technique, some even hold the neck down when doing this as to dampen the strings behind the fretting hand

2. What is a legato? or glissando?

3. How much would a guitar with Floyd Rose cost(US)? the cheapest of course

4. What would be a good guitar with Floyd Rose?, please not over $600

5. Please refer me some good begining theory books you all have used


thank you all

legato is playing something smoothly, glissando is a slide


Yeah but what kind of slide? how does it differ from a normal slide? slide outward upward what?

Just a normal slide, glissando is a musical direction

a regular slide is usually from one fret to another, a glissando is usually a downward slide across a large number of frets

now, i feel the need to point this out. legato is not a TECHNIQUE, it is a SOUND. not all exclusively hammer/pulloff licks actually SOUND legato. it is possible to make an alternate picking lick sound more legato than a hammer/pulloff lick.

for more on this, watch this:
